SST (Silicon Storage Technology) has launched an ATA Flash Disk Controller that combines command support for ATA/ATAPI-5 with enhanced performance and functionality, including added security protection and multi-word DMA.
Utilising SST's embedded SuperFlash technology, the SST55LD019x Flash Disk Controller manages the interface between the host system's bus and the flash media, enabling designers to create their own flash memory-based mass data storage products such as ATA-Disk Chips (ADC), ATA-Disk Modules (ADM), CompactFlash cards and solid state drives. Innovative multi-tasking technology enables the controller to provide sustained read and write speeds of up to 10 MByte/sec, enabling fast data transfer to memory.
It supports the standard ATA/IDE protocol up to PIO Mode-4 and easily interfaces to standard NAND flash media with 512-byte or 2-Kbyte page sizes and in both x8 and x16 configuration. An additional multi-word DMA Mode-2 interface further boosts performance.
